/div WroteColonAnd even though I know everyone hates Hot Topic, I am going to mention it....


I don't hate Hot Topic. I just hate how pricey it is I usually just go in there to get studs,spikes,patches and band shirts. I just don't like how exspensive they are charging $11 for a spiked bracelet!
My gf bought one at Claire's (a lot of people looked at her :b .) for $5!

Meh - I think I have yet to ever pay full price for a single thing in their store. As for accessories, most of the stuff they sell in there can easily be purchased elsewhere for less. Take their stripey tights, for instance. $10 a pair at Hot Topic versus $3.50/pair here.
It pays to shop around. ;)

I agree Hot Topic is very expensive. I found some bondage pants at http://www.imderanged.com for less than half the price that it would be at Hot Topic.

Hmmmm.... Randy River is where I bought some of my shit. They don't really have true Goth clothes, but some of the things they have are good: polyester shirts with Maltese Crosses, black pants with chains already attached, hoodies with skulls *coughs**laaaame**coughs* and studded wristbands and anarchy shirts and stuff like that.

If you have one near you, you might want to check it out. I myself rarely ever go there, since the closest Hot Topic is about an hour away, with easy access (despite the fact that I have no car and there is not a single bus company except the coach kind that goes to Vancouver. Damn.)

Cool. Yeah, I see those jeans already with trousers, some I see that must weigh the wearer down so much! I mean, one every inch. When I look at those, I always say that they look like the wearer's trying a bit too hard, but I really like them in my head.

Mmmmmmm, Camden Town. I'm jealous! I've been to London twice, and each time had but a few scant hours in Camden Town. But I did get some damn cool stuff there, both times.

As far as places I've gone where I actually live: Dillard's frequently has great gothy clothes for the more dressy/romantic look in their clearance special event dresses. I've found a couple of mock corsets and lots of velvet and swooshy long skirts for $10-$20, and they're usually pretty high quality.

I've also found a lot of good stuff at Buffalo Exchange. It's a vintage/used clothing chain (US, mostly western states; the stuff in their online store is WAY expensive) that buys gently used clothes. For that reason, it's hit-or-miss, and sometimes the prices are exhorbitant, but sometimes they've got fabulous stuff for really reasonable prices.

Cool, cause I've gotta go into a more romantic style, as at the moment, I need a more varied style - I seem to be all industrial. If you've been to Camden, I wouldn't be surprised if you saw Fair Goth Mother? If you're a girl in England, looking for Goth Clothes, wonderful place. As a guy, myself - there are some good things for men, too - not too many though. If we're thinking American, I found a great website, http://www.fuckthemainstream.com - If only I lived in the good old US of A, I'd be ordering stuff all day and all night.

I know! Hot Topic is my favorite store, but I just recently began to shop there because I actually had enough money to buy something...I mostly buy earrings..since they're the cheapest things I can afford. I put the expensive things I want on a wishlist and sent it to everyone for the holidays. Heheheehe...I always look in clearance at http://www.hottopic.com

Anyways, Ebay usually has stuff for less. *)

Well, I agree Hot Topic is expensive, because I just bought some pair of black pants, and they were 55.00! I just get some earings at Hot Topic. The only cheap stores I know are Ebay and Goodwill. ;P
